This picture is from 2011 when I was relearning how to make natural stone topped folk art tables. This was my 4th table. I found the base in the local recycle yard. The thin sandstone was from the Western Stone quarry / stone yard in Lyons Colorado. The rim was a problem. I hammered a thin copper tube, bent it into a circle and closed the loop with brass rivets. This, I learned, does not make for a rim that you would want on your dinning room table! It took me two years to figure out how to reliably make rims....that happened in 2013 with my 20th table.
